Going green is totally en vogue these days and what better way to embrace the movement than with recycled school supplies? From pens and notebooks to laptop accessories, your Barnes & Noble College bookstore has everything you need for a green start this fall.
Recycled Notebooks & Portfolios
Whatever your needs are for class, you can find a notebook or portfolio to feel good about. The New Leaf Reflections collection includes 2-pocket portfolios made of 80% recycled paper and 100 sheet composition notebooks, which contain 100% recycled paper and 95% post-consumer waste. The earth tone color palette makes the notebooks a perfect complement for the crisp fall days to come.
From Water Bottle to Pen
“Bottle-2-Pen” or B2P pens take the concept of going green to a whole new level – they are actually made from old plastic bottles! The pens are composed of 89.9% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and are the first pens made from such material. These gel rollers retail for just $2.98 and can be found at select campus bookstores.
Not only do recycled bottles make great pens – they make laptop sleeves, too! The fabric on the inside of these Neoprene Laptop Sleeves is composed of 100% recycled plastic bottles and the outside is waterproof so you never have to worry about spills during a study session. Better yet, ‘neogreene’ is water-based and has zero harmful toxins or chemicals. Plus, 25% less petroleum and energy is used to make them, so pick one up today!
